      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Trip: The Real South Side an Update - some rock by some river

 

Date: 6/6/2009

 

Trip Report:

SO IF YOU CLICKED here HOPING TO FIND THE NEWEST BETA ON THE THE BREADLINE THAT RUNS UP HOOD THAN.... :lmao:

 

this picture tr will highlight my last weekend in the umpqa area. Climbing at the old man and old women and then venturing not far to the wonderful mckinley rock. I was delighted to meet greg orton, chris farlick, and harold hall on my trip. Without the company of these three my trip would not have been as great and memorable. :brew: cheers

 

friday: massive wind storm, tree falls on sisters car, i get the hell out of dodge, pick brian up in C-Town, drive to the upper north umpqa river valley. no pics this was a boring day, lots of cops on the road...

 

saturday: wake up, meet the crew that came with greg and harold to set up the tyrolean, hike in, climb the old women, climb old man, come down, climb old women agian, fly between the two pillars, hike out, let'er buck with the fire, lost shoe to river, passed out....

 

sunday: wake up alpine early ...NOT, drive to mckinley, meet greg and harold, hike in, climb testosterone monkey, rap, climb hang ten, hike out, get lost driving on paved forrest roads, found freeway home.

one of the most striking lines I have seen in oregon or a bout anywhere for that matter. reminded me of excommunication on the priest but hard .11 instead of .13
